C'onstantinopJe, Feb. 2G.-The mis^ sion to London of Ibrahim Tlakki Pasha on behali of the Ottoman government has failed. His object was to persuade the powers to support the claim! of 'rurkey to the retention ot Adrlanople. He was, bDwever, unable to prevail upon the' \powers to accept the Porte's note as a basis for fresh peace negotiations, and he had no authority to eo beyond the proposals contained in that document. Although some members of tbe Turkish cabinet are in favor of peace the war element shows no tendency to-weaken its attitude. Military operations are still confined to skirmishes at various points along the front. Fighting on any extended scale is imiprobable for the present, oTving> to the inclemency of the weatter.
